Citizens’ Finance Team Holds Inaugural Meeting
The Citizens’ Finance Team met for its inaugural meeting at the Klein Multipurpose Center on January 16.
“The objective of the Citizens’ Finance Team is to increase the level of transparency and stakeholder engagement in the area of school finance,” Klein ISD Chief Financial Officer Daniel Schaefer said. “The collective input from the team will allow the District to improve the effectiveness of communication related to financial matters.”
Members of the Citizens Finance Team consist of district leaders, community members, and educators. During the meeting, they received useful information regarding Klein ISD’s budget and learned how the state and district worked together to lower the tax rate and provide a historic compensation package to Klein ISD employees.
This group is a subgroup formed from the Klein Leadership Coalition that aims to equip our community with accurate budget knowledge and increase financial communication. The purpose of the Klein Leadership Coalition is to serve as key communicators and advisers on focus areas of the district as well as legislative priorities.
The team will meet monthly to continue the conversation.
